    On Google I see that there is confusion on SAKA ERA . Kanishka started it, Sakas started it, Shalivahan started it?

    Both Vikrama and Shalivahan (Saka) era were supposedly started when kings defeated the Sakas.

    The rāṣṭrakūṭa-s had the biggest empire after the gupta-s. They were fighting from north Kerala to Kannauj at one time. Though their campaign in the north Tamilnadu must be a brief one. In the early 10th century the Chola-s weren't the power they would be under rājarāja chola.
